BBC's Planet Earth is finally being broadcast in High Definition on the Discovery Channel here in the United States. While hanging out at Joe and Rachel's place tonight, I happened to catch the end of one of the episodes and saw cameraman Paul Stewart being interviewed for his piece on birds of paradise. I saw and befriended Paul out in the field in PNG a couple of years ago, and it was cool to see his work featured so prominently in the show. Unfortunately, the U.S. broadcast version of Planet Earth has been re-dubbed with narration by Sigourney Weaver, which I found to be... rather uninspired. I much preferred the U.K. version, which featured David Attenborough; he clearly has passion about wildlife, which he manages to convey convincingly in his narration of Planet Earth's episodes. Weaver's narration almost put me to sleep.
